Sugar Process

Pure Cane Sugar starts with sugar cane that is harvested and transported to Imperial Sugar’s refining facilities. That’s where the refining process starts. When it comes to sugar processing, the term “refined” means “to purify.”

  1. First the cane is shredded, mixed with water and crushed between rollers to extract the juice.
  2. The extracted juice is filtered and evaporated, then further purified by filtering and boiling to remove molasses and color.
  3. The crystals are spun in a centrifuge and evaporated to produce raw sugar (also referred to as turbinado or unprocessed sugar). These crystals are large and have a slight brownish color.
  4. At this point raw sugar is finished production. It is packaged and sent to the store for you to purchase.
  5. Granulated white sugar continues to a refinery where it is combined with naturally occurring minerals to strip away impurities. It is washed, filtered through carbon and any non-sugar ingredients are removed. The refined sugar is then further processed into granulated form, dried and packaged.
